Unbeaten streak now at 6 for UW Men's Hockey team

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jamie McBain and Blake Geoffrion scored second-period goals to help 11th-ranked Wisconsin beat 12th-ranked Minnesota-Duluth 3-1 in men's hockey in Madison tonight.

Shane Connelly made 29 saves for Wisconsin.

The Badgers rallied from a 1-0 deficit after defenseman Travis Gawryletz scored his first goal of the season for Minnesota-Duluth.

McBain gathered the puck when Geoffrion's crossing pass intended for Patrick Johnson was broken up, and the defenseman fired a shot high past goaltender Alex Stalock.

Less than four minutes later, Geoffrion batted a rebound home from the top of the crease. That goal was reviewed to confirm that it was scored legally.

It was the first power-play goal in the last six games allowed by the Bulldogs, who have the nation's best penalty kill.

Ben Street scored an empty-net goal in the final minute for Wisconsin, which took over sole possession of fourth place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
